Wild caught fish
Seafood Connection only selects new wild caught fish species that have been certified or are expected to be certified in the near future. This is in accordance with the Blue Planet sustainability program. Seafood Connection is MSC certified, to preserve the “MSC chain of custody” when packaging and distributing fish.
The Blue Planet requirements for wild caught fish are:
- The fish must come from an independently certified fishery or a fishery undergoing assessment;
- Producer must comply to the highest quality requirments;
- Production is exclusively at certified processing plants with established traceability;
- Quality controllers must be employed to inspect and supervise production and to draw up quality reports. These controllers must also make sure the end product is always analysed at accredited laboratories.
